The Kawahia are one of the Sudanese Arab ethnic groups. Kawahia are African in many respects; however, they still retain aspects of their Arab culture, such as loyalty, hospitality and strict codes of honor. Sudanese Arabs also retain characteristics of Arab family and societal life such as the distinct roles of males and females. Males are highly valued and women occupy a subservient role beneath the men. However, in Sudanese Arab culture, women enjoy more freedom and liberty than women in many Arab societies around the world.
Access to the peoples of Sudan is somewhat limited. Christian workers are not welcome.
Christians may be able to find ways to assist the Kawahia people with their material and physical needs. Bridges of trust and friendship may open doors to the gospel.
There are few Christians today among the Kawahia people. They need prayer support. Pray for these and for others who will soon come to faith in Christ. Pray they would have access to scripture, both in printed and in recorded form.
Pray for the message of Jesus to come to the Kawahia in a way that connects with their cultural values of loyalty and honor.
